On Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 to offer Raw capture article (146 comments in total)

People keep saying:

"Bigger sensors would mean bigger sealed boxes."

that does not mean anything. How much bigger. The size of the TG-4 is listed as:

112 x 66 x 31 mm (4.41 x 2.6 x 1.22″)

So how much bigger would a larger sensor make it exactly? So much bigger that people could not lift it?

Why not platinum?

iOS only?? Come on...this will doom the product..not that it has much of a future anyway. Android is used everywhere by more people. Price is ridiculous anyway...priced like an Apple.

Nothing is free - Has any one seen a LARGE DROP in hard drive prices? Amazon must be getting them for free along with Bluffdale, UT...

And what have you contributed? Fear mongering? Do you access the internet from a library or your parents' house?

Really, they will keep them after a person dies and does not pay anymore? And they will be able to see profit from Aunt Mae's cat pictures? What nonsense....

Wye Photography: I am in the UK and have just tried to sign-up. The sign-in screens take me to the paid plans with only 5Gb being free or free unlimited uploads with Amazon Prime which isn't free. No where do any of the sign-in screens mention these two plans.

This is absolutely mis-leading and has rather cheesed me off somewhat!

Go to amazon.com and register

NOT

maxnimo: And what happens if a mad insider employee steals your precious photos?
Or if a mad insider employee sells your precious photos on the black market?
Or if a mad insider employee sabotages the storage servers?
Or if a mad insider employee scrambles all the user passwords?

Won't you have another backup?

If there is a "mad" insider, they are better off stealing credit card numbers from Amazon...who cares about Joe Blow's pictures.

maxgor: Just be aware guys , all this is available for amazon.com accounts only. All other regions have to wait for now. I am a bit unhappy about it! :)

Just sign up ..it works

cjcampbell: Right idea. Implementation needs work. The service is slow. Thom Hogan reports that it takes several minutes to upload a single D800 picture. Photos have to be uploaded manually instead of automatically. You have to upload them from a special folder. Search tools are less than basic.

But this is Amazon -- I don't expect it will be long before we see some marked improvements.

Despite the deficiencies of this tool, however, the real problem with cloud services is not the services themselves. It is the ISPs who think that you really don't need to upload things. You can have 100MB/Sec service and it will still upload at only a tenth that rate. That is unacceptable.

You do not have to upload from special folder.

8TB is close to being called unlimited.

Yes...if you have batteries

In reply to:

joe6pack: The Amazon offer is quite attractive and it also locks people in their Prime subscription. But being cheap, I backup my photos to Flickr. Just in case I had a double harddrive failure. JPEG is good enough for me for the last resort.

With my current boardband uplink speed of 1.5Mbps (that's upload, not download). It will take forever to upload raw files anyway.

U do not need Prime at all...only if u want all file types

This service seems to me to be marketed towards the amateur user who does not care about RAW. I would say hardly anyone cares about RAW...just the few here and a smattering elsewhere. When you look at it in this light it is a nice basic service priced fairly.

too many recent Nikon cameras have had quality control issues...I am surprised they did not pull out all the stops on this one to get customers back.

Nobody wants honest photography anymore though...everyone wants a nice photoshopped image...it just sells better.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Customers are so grumpy. This problem is random and only appears under very specific conditions. Unlike oily shutters, it's fixable. If you want to argue that Nikon would not have done anything prior to the D600 fiasco I agree, but they've learned their lesson.

I hope it is not random...otherwise it will never be fixed.

Direct link | Posted on Jan 21, 2015 at 03:23 UTC

Sounds like secret monster recall to me...good for doing it, but why the secrecy? Just say, "hey we messed up again and are fixing everything right away"

With the Japanese economy contracting an annualized 1.9% July-September perhaps Nikon is hurting more than they are leading on. What's going on over there? Inmates running the asylum?
